    Radio Specials American Radioworks Ready to Work: Reviving Vocational Ed -- Vocational education was once a staple of American schooling, preparing some kids for blue-collar futures while others were put on a path to college. Today that kind of tracking smacks of classism. "College for all" is the new mantra. But not everyone wants to go to college, and nearly half of jobs don't require a bachelor's degree. Many experts say it's time to bring career and technical education back. The program explores how vocational education has changed and how it's re-shaping debates about the purpose of school.

    Forum California Prisons Agree to Stop Using Race-Based Punishments California prison officials will no longer be allowed to impose inmate lockdowns based on race under a new legal settlement. California is the only state that uses these race-based punishments. Prison attorneys who sued the state cited at least 160 examples of such lockdowns that lasted six weeks or longer. We discuss the use of race-based policies in California prisons and what the new settlement means for maintaining safety and order in California's lockups.

Approved by the California Coastal Commission and the city's Board of Supervisors, critics claim the plan is bad for the environment and for kids' health.

    Forum 'All in the Family' Producer Norman Lear: A Life of Pushing Boundaries It's hard to name a groundbreaking TV show from the 1970s that wasn't connected to writer and producer Norman Lear. "All in the Family," "Good Times," "The Jeffersons" and "Sanford and Son" were just a few of Lear's trademark creations, shattering taboos with their edgy racial humor and willingness to dive into topics like rape, abortion and the Vietnam War. Lear joins us to talk about his new memoir, "Even This I Get to Experience."

    Commonwealth Club Senator Kirsten Gillibrand The U.S. senator joins the program to recount her personal journey in public service, and discusses her aim to galvanize women to reach beyond their busy lives and make a meaningful difference in the world around them. If women were fully represented in politics, Gillibrand says, national priorities would shift to issues that directly impact them: affordable daycare, paid family medical leave, and equal pay. Pulling back the curtain on Beltway politics, she speaks candidly about her legislative successes (securing federally funded medical care for 9/11 first responders, repealing Don't Ask, Don't Tell) and her crushing disappointments (failing by five votes to pass a bill protecting survivors of sexual assault in the military). Gillibrand also shares stories of growing up the daughter and granddaughter of two trailblazing feminists in a politically active family in Albany, New York, and retraces her nonlinear path to public office.
